Hawthorn and Child are mid-ranking detectives tasked with finding significance in the scattered facts. They appear and disappear in the fragments of this book along with a ghost car, a crime boss, a pick-pocket, a dead racing driver and a pack of wolves. The mysteries are everywhere, but the biggest of all is our mysterious compulsion to solve them. In Hawthorn & Child, the only certainty is that we've all misunderstood everything.

I'm a big fan of crime novels, so I was excited to read this one. However, the entire form of the book is peculiar. I found it very disjointed - each chapter has a different story with some cross-linking... More

“Hawthorn and Child”

This is not a detective novel. In fact, I'm not even sure it is a novel at all. Only when I read it as a series of loosely-connected stories did it start to make sense. Whatever it is though, it's amazing. I... More
